The story for children and youth of St. Rose of Lima, who became a hermit in her own home--rather than go to a convent--and how she became a great Saint. At her confirmation in 1597, she took the name of Rose, because, when an infant, her face had been seen transformed by a mystical rose. As a child she was remarkable for a great reverence, and pronounced love, for all things relating to God. Impr. 132 pgs 13 Illus,

About the Author

Sister Mary Alphonsus, O.SS.R., was a nun and author of the twentieth century. Her biography of St. Rose of Lima: Patroness of the Americas relates the tale of a humble, young, poor girl who gave her life to God rather than to the many suitors who eagerly pursued her. Sister Alphonsus' work was originally published in 1968 by the B. Herder Book Company, receiving the Imprimatur upon publication. It was also printed by TAN in 2010.
